came back from that and put banned performance enhancing drugs in his body. his great defense was, after what i've been through, do you think i would put that stuff in my body and, of course, everybody said, everybody bought that because it was so plausible. so for lance to have actually doped after cancer was a pretty tough thing to do and i think it indicated a win at all costs attitude that was commendable and it was a seriously wrong thing to do. >> you were one of the very first people to question lance armstrong. it goes all the way back to 1999. what was it that made you suspicious in the first place? >> my first point of kind of suspicion was watching lance's treatment of a young french rider and there will be people out there, if they were all doping, how wrong -- how can you blame lance and single him out? they all weren't doping and one of the guys who did not dope in 1999 was a young french rider, and he offered the pin that you couldn't win this tour de france in '99 without doping and much of the colleagues resented him saying that. the guy who most resented him sayi

of algeria and has been clear that our first priority is the safety and security of the hostages. defense secretary leon panetta says, he's putting the terrorists on notice. >> they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. >> but the demands of the group led by mokhtar belmokhtar is growing. they are demanding the release of omar currently serving a life sentence in the u.s. and a pakistani neuroscientist now in prison in the u.s. convicted of trying to kill u.s. soldiers and fbi agents in afghanistan. the obamaed administration, however, is ruling out any negotiating with the terrorists. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> again, this is an ongoing operation as far as we know, still conflicting information for a third day in exactly what is happening, how many people have been released, et cetera. but, wolf, you can certainly say that the countries that are involved and that includes japan, have been talking around the clock nonstop about this and coordinating their activities, which the secretary says is really key to

was accepted and now i'm told by defense officials that military planners are in deep discussion with the french to go over specifically what they are going to bring in and where they are going to bring it. one defense official that i spoke with said that it could be the equivalent of the entire mek mek cannized battalion and might take up to 30 flights to get all of that in there for the french. in the end rkt the french would reinvert the u.s. for the cost of those cargo flights. there was a separate request for some u.s. surveillance as well as refueling and u.s. planes could pull up to the french jets, refuel them in the air, that's another request that's still under consideration but that part has not been decided, wolf. >> that's stepping up the military role in mali. that's a significant is headline. let me bring tom fuentes back in. are you surprised that france is helping deal with this crisis in mali? >> i'm not surprised to not let the al qaeda affiliates in mali and other countries become more powerful, to gain a foothold in those countries. we're under a lot of press

the military help come from? >> it could come from europe and even closer. a senior defense official tells me now that defense secretary leon panetta has assured americans that the u.s. military will take all necessary and proper steps to deal with this attack. what could that mean? most importantly, the pentagon's africa command has what is called a commander and extremist force. it's a small, very lethal force that is dedicated to hostage rescue and counterterrorism. they are at an undisclosed location but we're told they are on a very, very short window to be put into action. now, expanding out just a little bit, take a look at the map, look at where algeria is. look at where this oil facility is. you can take a look in italy, the u.s. has air bases in italy which they could use a cargo lift, they could also use surveillance plates from there and they also have about 150 marines that are trained in crisis intervention in italy and also as we move over to rota, spain, there are two marine corps anti-terrorism bases there. further out, if necessary, back here on the east coast, all u.s. spec

or for repealing the legislation that paul's because, bill's boss signed the defense of marriage act. >> the justice department -- let me interrupt. the justice department is no longer defending the defense of marriage act. >> and it's going to go to a supreme court case as well and that's probably when we'll find out the future of that. the initiative in play that prompted many of the questions. wolf, i think the real key thing here and we'll hear about this today was speaker boehner. one of the changes now is it's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change. the house, one of the things they need to do smarter is not see a plank and swim with sharks. let harry reid lead and see what they can do. i think the president will have a lot fewer followers than he thinks. >> harry reid is as able senate leader. i love seeing him lead. it's interesting that

. >> there is criticism about his new cabinet. if you look at cia, secretary of defense, state and treasury, all white men. what does he need to do moving forward so that there are more people who look like you and look like others who are in his cabinet? >> well, suzanne, the president has a long reputation of surrounding himself with diversity. whether it is racial or gender diversity. he grew up surrounded by women. his first cabinet reflected that diversity. and he is admitted to the second cabinet and the white house staff, and they will do the same. judge him when he is finished, not when he is just beginning. i am confident for after knowing the president for nearly 22 years, everyone who has seen the final cabinet, will appreciate that he picked the people best for the job, and will reflect the diversity of our country. >> one of the bibles, the king bible, why was that important to him? >> well, this is martin luther king jr.'s birthday weekend. his life is dedicated to service. we're here this day with a national day of service. he gave one of the most amazing speeches of our nation's history ri

but notice the man who signed the defensive marriage act, bill clinton, opposed to gay marriage changed his position during the course of his presidency. >> every speech before 2004, looking for a constitution to ban gay marriage. >> i welcome it. what i didn't welcome was the most polarizing president that we had became more polarized. this was a speech for the 51% who voted for him. there wasn't much more for the 49% who did not. it was a speech that talked about collective action by the government and when you look at the biggest issue that we face of this era, it's the deficit. it's the trillion dollars of debt and the president didn't really talk about that. he talked about, we're not a nation of takers but that we've become a nation of debtors. >> the president clearly is a smart man, a smart politician. he's also a writer, a thoughtful person. if that is the speech, if the speech as ari described, why would he decide to give that speech? what's the political goal? >> this is the last time he's getting sworn in as president of the united states. that's why. i think it's martin luther
